A bit of a ruckus outside caught my ear, some feathered visitors in the gum tree.
Yellow Wattlebird – Anthochaera paradoxa are endemic to Eastern Tasmania and rarely visit our garden, but a large group flew in. They are larger than the more common Brush Wattlebird and have a distinctive long, pendulous, yellow-orange wattle at ear and a yellow patch on the belly. They also have a raucous voice with a variety of calls.
A gang of yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoo – Calyptorhynchus funereus also flew in for a feed of wattle seeds at the same time, making for a magic full on bird symphony!
